What little thing does your significant other do that drives you crazy?

I´m not talking about cheating or anything, just little every day things that irritate. For example, my husband has this habit of taking the dishes to the sink and putting them there without dumping any garbage. So if he had a candy bar wrapper, he puts it in a cup or on a plate and then sticks everything in the sink! I hate this because garbage does not belong in the sink! It´s a little thing, but oh, so irritating!

The little thing my husband does that drives me crazy is his clothes. He uses my quilt rack to put his clothes on if he's going to wear them for another day. If they are clean enough to wear for another day, put them away. If not, put them in the basket. Don't use my beautiful quilt rack as a valet!! Thank you, I've wanted to say that for 4.5 years, but consider it unimportant enough to fight about.

My husband picks on his food and leaves his plate on the table so that he can come back after a few hours to resume eating. It annoys me because I can't finish cleaning the table and washing the dishes in one shot. He gives me the reason that he has always eaten like that because he doesn't like the feeling of being so full. He needs to be rad for his next task and feeling heavy makes him sluggish. It doesn't really make any sense to me but he does the same thing to whenever we eat at his mom's house. So I just go along.

Last time when i am attached with my ex who is my first girlfriend.. there is one thing which i get very irritated and angry abt when she commit it.. It is when everytime i do not did something.. she will threaten and said if i do not do she will break up with me.. although she said it is a joke and i know it is a joke.. but i still dislike it.. as i personally feel that she does not treat the relationship serious enough.. there is always other things to joke about and i treat the relationship very seriously and love her alot.. so i do not wan her to say break up easily..

My boyfriend/significant other does the same thing. It's irritating as all get out. He also dumps the coffee grounds into the sink (granted we have a food disposal) but he fails to clean out the sink and leaves the mess for me. He reads the morning paper with his breakfast and will often times dump the paper on the floor as he finishes reading it. He claims he has always done this and that's just the way he is. One day, he left his newspaper on the kitchen floor and I kicked it into the living room where it stayed for three days. He made a comment about it one day, and I responded with, "Oh, I figured you'd pick it up eventually, so I just put it closer to the door, you know, to help you out a little." He hasn't put the paper on the floor since, but it's only been 2 weeks. There are hundreds of things he does that make me batty, and I won't go into them all, but they range from slightly annoying to quite irritating. What can we do about these things?
